Our story and the secret to our website's Success

Let us take a moment of your time to introduce ourselves. We are Michael and Kristin and we have been very happily married for twenty years. As cliché as it may sound, it was love at first sight when we met at the age of 18. We were engaged throughout college and were married directly after graduating. We are now living the life that we dreamed of and spent endless hours creating in our minds. We presently live in upstate New York and have three amazing children who bring us more joy than we ever imagined.

Our Beginning

At the time we met we were attending two different colleges that happened to be located at the opposite ends of the state of Vermont. We would travel back and forth every chance we had to see each other. We would use piles of change on the college dorm payphones to call each other every night (long before cell phones!)…we were in love! After almost a year of phone calls and car trips we decided to transfer to the same college so we could finally be together. We completed college, got married and settled in upstate New York. We were lucky enough to find jobs within our chosen fields and then we began our family...we were on our way! As time passed our family grew…fast forward to 2011 and our family now includes 3 kids, 2 dogs and one cat!

Our "Growing" Problem

As would be expected along with a growing family comes growing needs. How’s that old saying go? Oh yeah, love doesn’t pay the bills! Although we both had full time jobs, me as an artist/designer and Michael as a therapist, we needed more income to make ends meet. We considered one of us getting a second job but decided to explore other options first. We had to find something that would provide additional income for our family, something that we could start in our limited spare time and ideally something we could work on together.

Our Search Begins

We began a long search for a "real" business that would provide us what we needed. We read books and searched the internet looking for the answer. Along the way we found many interesting and questionable “business opportunities” and get-rich-quick schemes that claimed we’d be making lots of money in no time. We quickly passed these by and continued our search, never forgetting that "if it sounds too good to be true it usually is". We knew that any "real" business would require some time and effort to be successful.

We Find Exactly What We're Looking For

Then one day it happened…we stumbled upon SBI. SBI stands for Site Build It! and it helps you turn any hobby, passion or skill into a profitable online business. After discovering SBI! we began doing a little research and the more we looked the more we liked!

We were simply amazed at what we found. We read 100's of SBI! success stories about ordinary people who were able to apply their brains and motivation (BAM) to create a one-of-a-kind website. These people began without any internet know-how and they were now the proud owners of highly profitable websites.... websites that get more traffic than 99% of all other sites on the internet! These people were able to take their hobby, passion or skill and with the help of SBI change their lives forever. They were earning a living doing something they loved and we wanted in!
